Buy this book and laugh your head off or give it as a gift to any person you would wish to see with a laughed-off head. It's funny, actually... Plus, I can really recommend the one time magnification binoculars advertised in there, no more looking in the wrong side seeing everything so annoyingly small... Tea kettle tea kettle...

Hilarious Book Dec 10 2012

These series are great for humor! They are so funny, I have no idea how this guy came up with the names for the birds. I gave them as gifts to my uncle who is a bird watcher
Great book. Jan. 7 2014

We are a (casual) bird watching family who apparently enjoy bird humor, evidenced by the joy with which this book is passed around. Lots of fun for lots of ages. Every time through this book reveals more and more goofiness. These are some VERY creative writers, and excellent illustrations as well. Perfect for anyone from a bird-watching friend, to a bored kid.

This book is so fun to show someone who thinks it's serious and it ends up being silly. Very clever. An unusual sense of humor. I'd like to get some for gifts!

We never tire of reviewing this series as we always see something new. A laugh riot. Would love to be a fly on the wall when they are creating these masterpieces. Real treasures.
